Good News!

Oh Happy Day!
BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraq's High Tribunal on Sunday found Saddam Hussein guilty of crimes against humanity and sentenced him to hang...

Oh this truly is a good thing. One can only hope he'll meet his end sooner rather than later. the visibly shaken former leader shouted "God is great!"

Erhm. "Allah" may very well be "Akbar", but soon Saddam's vile carcass will be "Rigor", followed closely by "Mortis".

And on that day I will offer up a toast the Iraqi people.

"The hanging of Saddam Hussein will turn to hell for the Americans," said Vitaya Wisethrat, a respected Muslim cleric in Thailand, where a bloody Islamic insurgency is raging in the country's south.

"The Saddam case is not a Muslim problem but the problem of America and its domestic politics," he said. "The Americans are about to vote in a midterm election, so maybe Bush will use this case to tell the voters that Saddam is dead and that the Americans are safe. But actually the American people will be in more danger with the death of Saddam."

Perhaps Mark Steyn is right. There may be moderate Muslims out there, but there is no moderate Islam.
